Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

2 Answers

Ds disaster Hi my daughter's ds has decided it won't save any of her games. Worse still, it deletes any saved ones that you have and goes back to the beginning. This happens on both SP and DS games and is driving her nuts. We tested the SP games on her old SP and they work fine there although of course the old game is gone. Help!!!!

Unable to save games

if i remember correctly i had two different ds's a original DS and a DSI both of these have automatic game save so your daughter can play a game and just press quit when shes done and it will automatically save it. I hope this helps Merry Christmas!

Cant delete touchmaster scores

Make the high score list on one of the games. I used one I didn't play much so even a 0 score made the list. type your name and as soon as it starts to save, take the game card out. Turn off the ds and turn it back on. You will know if you were successful if a saving frame comes up while it is booting up. If not, try it again. It took me 10+ times but finally it worked! So glad to have my daughter in law off the high scores in most of the games

DS Lite - game boy advance game - delete saved data?

Do so how you normally would when playing the GBA game on a GBA (It best be a GBA game, because DS and DS Lites cannot communicate to older Game Boy games), go through the menus (on the game) and delete the files. It's not a matter of the DS having the problem it's the game.

I've went through the menu's and deleted the game but my game still has "corrupted data":

First, do all you can do, clean out the slot in the DS Lite, and the cartridge (with a damp, NOT SOAKING WET, cotton swab), and try the game again. Start a new save file, save it after a ways, and try to load it again. IF it -STILL- has a corrupted save file problem, then it is time to bring it to the seller or the manufacturer.

The seller: Telling the seller what's happening is great. BUT SHOWING the seller that the save data never loads really helps! Customers can say quite a few things to Sellers just to get a new game or their money back, but showing them is pretty much proof. No, you don't -HAVE- to show them, but if the seller is -that- skeptical, it may be wise to bring your DS along with you.

The manufacturer: All games have a Technical support call number, also going to nintendo's main site,, and going straight to their technical support pages helps too. Sending it in will warrant a little wait time, but if done correctly you will receive a fixed or new game from them as well.

Cannot save game in super mario 64 for ds

maybe you're not going to the start and turning it off. when you save everything else and quit turn it off right on the menu or further back. I think this will not answer the question so if no work sorry.
